For the last 10 or more years during June, there is a Oyster, Wine & Food Festival in Johannesburg where in excess of 60 000 oysters from Knysna gets consumed and appreciated together with a variety of other foods and wine. It is always a very popular activity. Out in the winter sunshine, with friends, good music, fun food, what more can you ask of in the perfect weekend. But I have to admit something… when we taste oysters, we always take a small flask of Caol Ila 12 yo with us. Nothing enhances the taste of fresh Knysna oysters better than this peaty smoky Islay dram. It is total perfection.

This is one of the bottles that have been in my collection for ages. I keep on drinking it, but never writing about it. So, with the Laphroaig Distillery 200 year anniversary during 2015 and before we finish this bottle, I decided that it is time to officially taste the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Laphroaig is names after Loch Laphroaig on the south coast of Islay. Donald and Alexander Johnston established the distillery in 1815.
